10,000 Registration Documents Shredded in Hocking County?


http://www.freepress.org/columns/display/3/2005/1164

Ten Thousand Voter Registration Documents May Have Been Shredded in Hocking County, Ohio
July 13, 2005

Members of the Progressive Ohio Backbone Campaign traveled to Hocking County on Monday morning, July 11, and filed criminal charges with the Hocking County Sheriffs Department against the countys Board of Elections (BOE) Director Lisa Schwartze.

Schwartze had previously admitted at the July 5 BOE meeting that she had used the office to promote a Republican Party fund-raiser last fall. The charges filed against Schwartze, however, do not to pertain to Schwartzes use of the BOE office for partisan political fund-raising. Rather, the charges filed pertain to her alleged illegal shredding of election documents, the Free Press has learned.

Sherole Eaton, the fired Hocking County BOE deputy director and Congressional whistleblower, who swore an affidavit against a Triad company technician for allegedly offering a cheat sheet and replacing the countys central voting tabulator hard drive during last years presidential recount, says that Schwartze may have destroyed up to ten thousand documents.

I told her that she couldnt shred and delete the changes of addresses that were coming in from registered voters during the election year, but she wouldnt listen to me, Eaton explained, In order for Lisa to destroy those documents, shes got to go to the Board of Elections, state officials, and then ask the Ohio Historical Society if they want them. And even then, she can only destroy them according to a public records retention schedule that requires they are kept for four years.

Eaton says that all investigators would have to do is ask Schwartze for hard copies of the change of address forms to verify her allegations.

Eaton also claimed that she told BOE President Gerald Robinette of Schwartzes action including her use of the office for Republican fund-raising purposes and the Democratic Board Chair said, Lets not go public with it. We can use it for blackmail purposes later.

they know they don't have the numbers to win legitimately, so they have to cheat. that's the ONLY chance they have to win.

this is simply MORE PROOF that the polls were RIGHT!!!

4. I am so glad this is not going away.
I want to see heads roll in Ohio, preferably Blackwell's first. If only there was this kind of determination in Fl, 2000.

13. NoBush - your link just takes me back to the
main page of the "2004 Election Results..." forum.

Do you have a more direct link to a thread about Ms. Eaton's fund?
Also - consider posting your request in the DU Activist Forum...

10. Throw another log on the huge pile of evidence
Nominated. This article is yet another reason the election 2004 forum should be on the home page and not buried.
John Kerry won the election!

11. Kerry won the exit polls without
the people who could not wait in lines, and without the people who had to vote provisionally or not at all because they're registrations had been destroyed. Looks like it was a pretty good margin of victory for Kerry.

12. Kerry's margin had to be 60%+
No evidence, my suspicion after reading a whole lot about fraud before, during, and after the election.

This is why I still feel the sensation of a knife in my gut when I think about Nov 3, 2004 -

15. I know Nov. 3 was just about the worst day of my life.
8 AM chem lab, and I had spent most of the night before on the couch flipping around, praying Ohio would somehow go to Kerry. After class I logged on here to see what was going on ... and it was all over. It ranks up there with the worst moments of my life. :cry:
